Layin’ In The Sun,
Talkin’ ‘Bout The Things

But All Those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas

According to the EWG, the President’s Cancer Panel issued a landmark report last month suggesting that public health officials “grossly underestimated” the extent of environmentally-induced cancer among the in 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with the disease annually. Of course no one’s surprised by this, but the EWG has compiled nine practical tips for consumers to reduce the risk of environmentally-induced cancer.

Mama’s Kitchen

There’s nothing like mom’s good lookin’ home cookin’. No matter how relatively simple the food may be, the flavors are something we can’t duplicate at home. Made with love, and it shows. Pictured here, spicy southwestern style chili topped with avocado, salad with the best local dressing I’ve tasted, and garlic bread.

City Picnic

I love these Parisian style urban oasis photos by The Burch Jerks.

"Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got to not forget to laugh." - Katharine Hepburn

NYC Food Film Festival - June 23 - 27, 2010

Food and film - two things I absolutely love. Food trucks and movies under the Brooklyn Bridge with stunning views of Manhattan at night? I’m sold. Apparently everyone else is too.

Gas Works Park

This past Saturday was the warmest day of the year in Seattle (mid-70s), and the sun (shockingly) stayed with us all day. You better believe we took advantage of this, so we spent our day at Gas Works Park. The remnant of the coal gasification plant make the park unique, and the Seattle skyline and water views from this park are beautiful.

Over-the-top, gooey, mooshy, fun, sweet, creative proposal. I bet she felt pretty damn special.


Viral Video: Unique Wedding Proposal

Romance alert in Madison Square Park! Don’t miss the t-shirts at 2:45. The groom is a filmmaker and circus school graduate, Metro Station’s ‘Shake It’ is their song. They run off camera to a horse drawn carriage ride… watch and be wooed.
